GERMAN CARMAKERS TO OVERHAUL DIESEL ENGINE SOFTWARE TO CUT POLLUTION

08/07/2017

German politicians and car manufacturers agreed to overhaul the engine software on 5.3 million diesel cars to cut pollution. This decision comes on the heels of two decisions by Britain and France to eventually ban diesel and gasoline vehicles in the near future. German manufacturers have taken heat after the admission by Volkswagen that it cheated U.S. diesel emissions tests two years ago. The auto industry is Germany's biggest exporter and provides 800,000 jobs. For the full story see http://www.reuters.com/article/us-germany-emissions-idUSKBN1AH5FO.
